Should the new Gen.5'ers be included in this list?

Now that we know their types, should Reshiram and Zekrom be included in the list as well? Ztobor 21:25, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

They should be, but we're lazy and the server glitches have prevented us from doing much. TTEchidna 23:19, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
Oh. I was half-expecting you to answer "no". Ztobor 03:19, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Fully evolved Dragons

Should we keep the small section saying that before Gen V, all fully evolved dragons had two types? Seems a bit pointless now that two of them don't. Dawnshadow 09:29, 1 October 2010 (UTC)


Should it be stated that Dragon's legendary status, and nature themed powers in mythology are why it resists the "basic"/natural elements Fire, Water, Grass, and Electric?Tesseract 07:34, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

No, we don't offer explanations behind type effectivenesses. --SnorlaxMonster 13:15, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

But on the psychic type page tells that all they types thats super effective against psychic refers to fears affecting the mindMithril 20:06, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

"The only Dragon type without a weakness to Ice is Kingdra." Isn't there also Dialga, Palkia, Reshiram, and Kyurem? Kianglo 19:40, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

"The only non-legendary Dragon-type Pokémon that doesn't sport any weakness to Ice is Kingdra. :--SuperAipom7 (Wanna chat?) 19:47, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Dragon and Fire attacks

"Furthermore, the combination of Dragon and Fire has almost unresisted coverage." Though Heatran does resist Dragon, Fire is neutral on it, so wouldn't this sentence be false? —βetA ZerØ 18:57, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

Heatran has Flash Fire, which makes it immune to Fire. Werdnae (talk) 20:32, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

What about Fighting? I'm looking at the Steel-list, and not seeing any pokemon I know to resist Fighting. I believe Fighting isn't much less common than Fire in the wide move-pools of Dragon-types. PLA (talk) 16:37, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Technically Heatran can still be damaged by Fire if Gastro Acid or Mold Breaker is in effect, or if Heatran has its hidden ability Flame Body -- but I don't think you can even get hidden-ability Heatran, so under normal circumstances it does resist Dragon and is immune to Fire. Also note that any Pokemon with Tinted Lens and a Dragon attack (beyond Dragon Rage) will have completely unresisted type coverage due to the ability, but that's largely a hypothetical scenario as it requires Skill Swap, Mimic, Hidden Power, and/or a summoning move to execute. --Stratelier 23:17, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Type specialist on Trivia

The trivia says "Every Dragon type specialist has been the final member of their associations, with three eighth Gym Leaders (Clair, Iris, and Drayden),[...]". In Pokémon B2 W2, Drayden is the seventh Gym Leader. Should not this be fixed? BrasilLucasSant 21:11, 7 August 2012 (UTC-3)

I've altered it. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 00:20, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

Salamence (Trivia)

Salamence is the only Pokémon that is used by every Dragon-type gym leader or Elite Four member. Maybe this is worth mentioning in the trivia section.--Perlgia (talk) 16:18, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Redundant info

The page mentions the fact that Dragon is the only type resistant to all starter Pokémon types twice, once in the defensive characteristics and again in the Trivia section. Not sure which one should be removed. Hawntah (talk) 12:00, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
